About the Gingerbread Bundt Cake Recipe Ingredients:

Flour – Spoon and level the flour when measuring it, otherwise you’ll wind up with dense donuts. 
Baking soda & powder – Helps the donuts rise in the oven. Make sure to test for effectiveness before using if you’ve had it longer than 6 months.
Spices – Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves are the spice blend found in gingerbread.
Oil – Using oil rather than butter results in a more moist and tender cake. Canola has a really mild flavour that lends itself to baking.
Sugar – Use packed brown sugar as it’ll create a deeper flavour than white.
Molasses – Molasses gives this cake that classic gingerbread flavour. Do not substitute or leave it out. Your cake won’t be gingerbread flavoured. I recommend cooking molasses but fancy will work well too.
Eggs – Bring to room temperature before baking with eggs if possible. They mix better and the batter will rise better.
Vanilla extract – Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavour, but artificial is just fine too.
Sour cream – The creamy texture of sour cream makes this bundt cake more moist than if you use milk.
